Linked Up

I have been a bit lax with posting on The Pear Tree as of late. I do know. I have not been keeping up with my self-imposed requirement of at least three posts a week.

What can I say? It’s summer. I’ve been at the beach. At the farmer’s market. In the park, at the playground. I’ve been making ice cream and pies and fruit crisps like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve been away from my computer.

But I didn’t want to let another day go by without giving you something to read (like you’re actually on your computer now and not out doing the same things I am if not more!).

So today I want to share some links with you. Some links to the blogs that I love best. Blogs that are (now blushing) more faithful at posting than I am. I’m not suggesting you read them instead of The Pear Tree. I’m just thinking that if you enjoy The Pear Tree you might enjoy these reads as well.

Hooked on Houses
I’m a snoop and love to see what homes look like inside. Hooked on Houses lets me get my fix, from celebrity homes and houses that have featured in movies to quirky living spaces and ideas for home décor.

Cake Wrecks
A daily parade of professional cakes gone wrong. Horribly wrong. You just have to see it to believe it.

Soule Mama
This crafty mother of four is such an inspiration for her simple living and talent with a pair of needles and some yarn. She also quilts and sews and takes evocative pictures of her family’s life.

Nilsen Life
Have you ever read something that captures your thoughts or ideas or feelings even better than you could have said it? Happens to me every time I read this blog!

Classic Play
A blog, yes, but with a magazine filled with engaging stories. Especially interesting for parents with young children.

What Looks In
A blog about writing by The Pear Tree’s food writer, Darcie Hossack, and her journey toward becoming a published author.

Heather Bullard
Inspired décor through the lens of a very talented stylist and photographer.

Lisa Leonard
I came for the jewellery but stayed for the blog. A series of beautiful, inspiring posts that encourage readers to embrace each moment.

Plastic Manners
This girl is trying to go an entire year without buying or using plastic. She’s eight months in and her chronicle is thought provoking.

Well, happy reading – and don’t forget, if you leave a comment on one of these sites, don’t forget to tell them who sent you 😉

Oh, and what are your favourite blogs? We’d love to have a peek!

  1. One of my favorites is You Are My Fave, Every day she highlights things that are her fave at the moment. It’s such eye candy, I love it!

  2. Susan Toy has been baking on Bequia, developing a very sour sourdough recipe for me at

  3. Thanks for the shout-out! There are a couple of blogs on your list I haven’t seen before, so I’m off to check them out. 🙂

  4. thanks so much for the shout out! I welcome any & all Pear Tree readers with open arms. And, in the meantime, will scamper off to read a few of the others that I’ve not seen before. For example, I didn’t know the talented & lovely Darcie had her own blog!
